The superb Pentax-F 100mm f2.8 MACRO! (worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
The superb Pentax-F 100mm f2.8 MACRO! (worldwide)

Asking Price
399.00 USD

Item Location
Alda, Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
Pentax-F 100mm f2.8 Macro (with Focus Limiter)
NOTE: Soft case pictured is NOT included (it has been sold separately),

You don't see this lens offered on Marketplace often, and the last two that I have offered here were snapped up quickly (by buyers who are Very Happy Campers).


Why are many people after this one, instead of the current D/FA or later FA models? One of the highest rated Pentax lenses (SMC Pentax-F 100mm F2.8 Macro Reviews - F Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database). The later D/FA version <b>lacks </b>the handy focus range limiter. If you have a Pentax Q, this lens will also give you a great 560mm equiv. FOV and super macro working distance, along with greater DOF (thanks to the smaller sensor). And yet you can get this one for the same price (or less).

QuoteQuote:
Difficult to find one in excellent condition due to its age and rarity. Older F lenses tend to be popular due to subjective preferences; i.e. amount of "pixie dust", color of coating (deeper purple), and perhaps material composition of optics.
QuoteQuote:
The lens has a unique rendering quality to it, different from modern digital lenses.
See 201 images accepted into the Pentax Photo Gallery for this model:


If that isn't enought to make you drool over owning this lens, there are MORE on Flickriver.


This lens still has the bright gold "Passed" sticker affixed. It shows a little bit of use cosmetically (see photos). Optically and mechanically it is superb.












I will be happy to ship this excellent lens worldwide, but only to PF members with good feedback. No new members, please.

Priced to sell quickly: $399 plus actual shipping to your address. I have another purchase to pay for and too many macro lenses.

Yes it will be interesting to see what happens to legacy lens prices following the FF announcement.

This is a stunning lens - STUNNING. Grab it while you can - they are quite rare.

This is a fantastic lens. I see these pop up on ebay quite often but they don't stay long. I picked up the FA version and love it!
